RE: DIY 50 amp to 20 amp pigtail

I advise 12GA wire and 20A breaker. Our barn sub-panel is supplied by a [email protected] 2-pole breaker in our main house panel… the circuits original purpose was to have a 240v, [email protected] welder outlet in the garage.. I had an electrician repurpose that service to our [email protected] RV plug in the barn (no longer a 240v outlet in the garage)… I currently have one [email protected] and [email protected] breakers in the sub-panel… when we plug in the RV we shut off the. 20a breakers and vice-versa… The spousal unit is an electrical engineer and as such has assured me EVERYTHING electrical is underrated… I.e. we have more than [email protected] going into the barn panel and each of the breakers will handle more than their rated capacity (but will trip in the event of an short/overload)… at least that’s what I heard… when she gets going I understand about every third word, the rest is electrical-eze… Chances are very good I won’t ever run each of the circuits up to their rated capacity… but I’m the worrying kind… My intention was to replace one of the existing 20a breakers with a 15a then add a second 15a breaker…. Which would give me 20a + 15a + 15a = 50a (plus the dedicated 50a RV outlet) Yes? No? Other suggestions? You actually have two 50A circuits available as 100A total capacity. Add another 20A and forget it.

RE: DIY 50 amp to 20 amp pigtail

Seems odd that using what I believe is a questionable solution :Drather than to install a 15- or 20-amp circuit and receptacle for the tractor. Receptacle could be used for other purposes. Next summer… I promise… I will install a dedicated 15a circuit for the tractor… but right now it’s too friggin’ cold…:D I advise 12GA wire and 20A breaker.

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

I added this Dexter system to my Boat Trailer. I know something like this is on my Dad's RV "Chevman" Larry sold him. I am betting a much less expensive way to get er dun. Youtube look at 4:10 it talks about the Torflex axles. "2019 FOREST RIVER ROCKWOOD 8299BS Signature Ultra Lite Island Kitchen Fifth Wheel Colorado RV Sales" https://i.imgur.com/f4LMiE9l.jpg

For a heavier RV the IS is the ONLY way to go!!! Left unit is 8k and the other two are 7k. https://i.imgur.com/ix8Nhhdl.jpg

RE: DIY 50 amp to 20 amp pigtail

Generator/RV 50 Amp 125/250-Volt NEMA 14-50P Plug to Household 15 Amp 5-15/20R T-Blade Connector RV Adapter That will do the job but I would rather have what was mentioned earlier as this will give you the 30A/120V option. "You can buy what you need off the shelf. Get a 50a-30a adapter. Then get a 30a-20a adapter."

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

I may be wrong but I am fairly sure the 2008 and back "ALLISON 1000" is not the same as what is in the GM's now??? I also am fairly sure the earlier trans was the weak link with GM saying they didn't need to be able to tow 30k or whatever it was.

Smoke and Mirrors ;) Pretty sure Stelantis/Ram doesn't make the "RAM" logo that is placed on the grill and tailgate of a RAM truck. Is that smoke and mirrors? Did you stay up late last night thinking that one up? :B

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

the tranny is of course an ALLISON 10 speed. Are you sure? You might just have Allison emblems stuck on the hood or fender. It might be a 10L90E or even a Powerglide with 8 more gears stuffed in the housing somehow. Well it worked! The deal GM made to brand their 10 speed transmission as an Allison is fooling many, who now think they have a real Allison transmission. ROFLMAO....some of you take the cake. So you think they are being forthright and honest???

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

Maybe? this will shame Ram into getting a better trans from the past decade or so into their big diesels? On another note, the drug testing policy for the GM truck artistic designers is still not working in their favor. For the love of God, how does Chebbie come up with such a butt ugly nose and then keep using that design? They use the design because it sells. Yes, it is more polarizing than it needs to be, but they have increased their marketshare since 2020, the start of the new design (which to be fair, may be inspite of its looks and not because of it). Either way, if it sells, it stays. The reason they have improved sales is because they changed engine and trans components to keep up with RAM and Ford on SAE towing numbers.

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

Let's make this perfectly CLEAR. The trans in the current GM's are only "BRANDED ALLISON". Makes me all warm and fuzzy. RAM has a Chrysler trans and AISIN MD trans. Ford has its own HD trans. No smoke and mirrors with either of them. I'm not going to accuse Ram of using smoke and mirrors but I'm pretty sure if Ram came out with an eight speed tranny to stick behind the HO Cummins they wouldn't need the Aisin name to sell it. I agree. But reality is the Cummins does not need more gears.

No smoke and mirrors with either of them. I have owned many GM trannies. Never had any issues with any of them. 2 allisons and still have one with no issues. Just my experience for many years. chevman I am assuming yours is actually built by Allison? To be clear I am not saying anything bad about the current GM trans it's just a bit deceiving.

RE: 2023 Ford 40k towing, 500hp, 1200tq

While I agree with the last sentence, I feel as we approach semi-trailer weights, more weight on the driver is needed for traction. At 10% (4k lbs) pin weight, starting on a steep wet hill may be an issue. At 20% / 8k lbs, it'll be much better. A single axle tractor towing a 40k trailer (Pepsi trailer, etc.) would have close to 20k on the drive axle. When bragging about maximum tow capacities, manufacturers are NOT concerned in the least about "real world conditions." All they care is if the truck can move it on a flat dry road. Pretty sure they all follow SAE J2807 towing protocol for ratings…. EXACTLY and the testing is much more than on flat dry roads.
